West Ham end Chelsea's 100 percent record with gritty draw

The Hammers' reliance on star striker Arnautovic was underlined when Andriy Yarmolenko missed the best chance of the game, the Ukrainian heading wide while unmarked at the back post with Kepa rooted to his spot.

The match fell into a similar pattern in the second half, Chelsea searching for openings around the West Ham box but Felipe Anderson and Yarmolenko looked unsafe when the home side broke forward. "We need to improve and then maybe in one year we will be at the same level as Liverpool".

"West Ham may be a big test of that". It was just getting us to gel together, obviously signing nine players at the beginning of the season and a new manager, it was always going to be hard.

Jimmy Butler isn’t worth the price for the Toronto Raptors
Taylor is attending the NBA's Board of Governors meetings today in NY , which include owners and top basketball executives. In Minnesota, he had issues with Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns and just seems to be a negative influence on guys.

"Of course, I know that the Premier League is very competitive". Still West Ham deserve great credit for their resolute defensive display and how hard they worked off the ball - and they had the chances to win it.

Sarri is not convinced Chelsea's Europa League trip to PAOK had anything to do with Sunday's sluggish performance, though he does not see why the Premier League can not do them a favour with match scheduling.

"Maybe we could have done better in the last 25 minutes of the first half".

Lions Were Close To Trade With Patriots For Rob Gronkowski
Gronkowski received a contract extension with a chance to make between $3.3-just over $13 million this season based on incentives. Ultimately, he made a decision to return to the Patriots, who later restructured his contract in an act of good will.

Twice in the second half Hazard's nature overrode his new role in this team, as he tried to play in Morata with an overly ambitious back-heel and a first-time aerial flick rather than attempting to trouble Fabianski himself. They were cutting off very well every kind of pass for Giroud. He failed to inspire a goal, however. I want to see the picture of the situation tomorrow morning in the training session. "We'll take that all day long", said Mark Noble, West Ham captain. I don't think so.

Sarri's frustrating afternoon was made worse by the loss of Antonio Rudiger to injury in the second half.

While for a midweek tie at Anfield in the Carabao Cup both teams could field much-changed lineups, the top-flight meeting at Stamford Bridge on Saturday is already eagerly anticipated, though Sarri is wary of the threat that will be posed by Liverpool.

Theresa May demands respect from European Union in Brexit negotiations
In addition to Mr Tusk's cutting post, Mrs May faced dismissive remarks from other European Union leaders after the summit. May cited Britons' vote in 2016 to leave the EU. "It was pretty insulting for someone who doesn't even run a country".

"I said to Shaq at half time that I'd never taken a player off at half time after such an influential half", said Klopp.
